Comedian Denis Leary's always been controversial, but now he's sticking his finger in Hollywood's eco-friendly eye, claiming he needs trucks and his goal is to leave Earth with the biggest carbon footprint he possibly can.
The delightfully contrarian sentiment comes whenever reporters ask what he's doing to be eco-conscious. His response is matter of fact and to the point; he lives on a horse farm, loves space and delights in the fact capitalism means he can choose what he drives.
"My goal is to leave this planet with the biggest carbon footprint I can possibly leave. First of all, I have to have trucks because I live most of my time on a horse farm, so I've gotta have trucks. It's in the northeast, I've got to have pickup trucks to move snow, number one. Number two, just if I'm driving, I don't have to have an SUV but I want a big car. That's why I love America. That's why I think we should save the auto industry. I don't care."
So that probably means he won't be drinking wheatgrass smoothies in a Prius while going to the Yoga Shelter. Thank God. [Starpulse]
